About this project

Gribbet! is a pattern repeating game with cute animated frogs that readers learn to how draw and animate. The frogs look at the mouse pointer and the singing frog, and have three different facial expressions and five different sayings to help the game feel lifelike.

Trivia

I wrote the first version of Gribbet! for the Amstrad CPC home computer. That game was published in Amstrad Action magazine in March 1991. You can download my Amstrad disc and tutorials here, but if you don't already know what an Amstrad is, you won't find it easy to use. The original Gribbet! was inspired by a swinging frog ornament I had on my desk.
